Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Partial, Rock skis ]
  The snow we received last night and this morning wasn't measured in inches but instead millimeters. Despite the lack of significant new snow we were out grooming on the 2.5km loop we have been grooming and skiing on. Groomed last night than again this morning. A ski over lunch found best conditions since the melt and freeze last week. We will have this loop open for diehard skiers. There are some hard icy spots underneath and a couple small bare spots to use extreme caution on but enough good sections making for a nice ski. Start out on the soccer field and follow the fresh groomed. Best to ski counter clockwise.

Grooming 
[ Trails: Closed, Rock skis ]
  We were out grooming on the 2.5km loop we groomed on Wednesday to try and improve conditions and provide skiing opportunity. The better sections got a little bit better and the solid ice sections remained icy. Skiing later in the day on the groomed found better skiing on the good sections and sketchy on the other segments. Despite these efforts to improve conditions, we have to close the trails due to overall unsafe conditions. A few folks are sneaking out to ski on the better sections, doing so at their own risk. We are hopeful for a an inch or two on Sunday to groom and open more trail.

Grooming 
[ Trails: Closed, Rock skis ]
  We went out this morning to groom a 2.5km loop that had good coverage and not many hills (didn't want to get stuck with groomer on ice but got stuck anyways) and worked in the little dusting. Three passed worked up the snow on the better sections but a ski later still was pretty treacherous. There are some glare ice sections that pull my groin just looking at it. We are closing the trails for skiing until Friday than will try and groom any new snow and open a small loop, more if additional snow.

Firsthand Scheduling 
[ Trails Open: Partial, Rock skis ]
  Warm temps and wind were not kind to the trails overnight. However, there was enough good coverage for a morning ski. Went out with Craig Stolen before breakfast and had a great ski on Skaters Waltz and North Loup. I always enjoy skiing with Craig because regardless of the conditions, he is always smiling...just ski. We closed the trails this afternoon and hope to open again either tomorrow afternoon or Wednesday morning, depending on any new snow after it cools down.

Firsthand Scheduling 
[ Trails Open: Partial, Rock skis ]
  A nice weekend of springlike skiing. Today a bit warmer hitting the 50 degree mark but a late afternoon classic ski with Jonell and Jack found really nice skiing on the east side of Sukkerbusk and the entire North Loup (minus one section that was bare). Our snow base is old granulated snow that is compacted hard and skied nice even in the warm temps versus newer snow that is softer. We have closed most of the trails except the above mentioned. Another warm day on tap tomorrow, but we will have these select trails open than hope new snow follows the cold temps on Monday night and ready to groom any new snow. Fat bike trail closed until Tuesday morning.
